Pretty good for ISO 1600 on a D300.

Thats was also my first thought !  With ISO 1600 shots like that from a D300 who needs the D400 ?

Well, you need pretty ideal circumstances to get that level of performance out of ISO 1600 on the D300 and there are many circumstances where you need/want to go higher than ISO 1600.  Something like this was ISO 25600, 1/200, f/2.8 on a rented D600.  Didn't even attempt it with my D300.

That would be 1/12 sec at ISO1600 ... and these are relatively static subjects (as opposed to BIF). With a D7100 sensor, one could at least try ISO 6400, which would allow 1/50.  Enough reason for me to want that in a D400.

Some cameras, some lenses, some computers
